Have you tried booting into "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" from that same options screen? If you can get to the command prompt that way, we may be able to run a system restore. If not, let me know and we'll go another direction.

Try Recovery Console. Insert the XP Installation CD and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.
When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password (if you have not set this, press "Enter"). At the system prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press "Enter".
This should start the System Restore feature. Restore to a date before the problem began.
Let us know how this goes.
